Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., the incoming chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said he will hold hearings and possibly subpoena NCAA officials, college presidents, players, coaches and athletics directors in an effort to force a playoff in Division 1-A football, USA Today reports.The yakkety yaks fuss about Congress needing to focus on the stimulus bill -- and fersherr, they really oughta. But the BCS, as I've said before, is a good-ol'-boyz abomination to any purist sports fan. Moreover, if the Repos can grandstand on steroids in Baseball (and how great is it, by the by, that they took down one of their reptilian own in Roger Clemens? -- Bwahahha!!), I figure a 1-A playoff system would go a long way to decentralize a Repo enclave and help -- *ahem* -- Spread The Wealth!
Hell! I might even start watching college football again.
Update: Next up on my grandiose scorecard: Creating competition among cable television providers. Oh, and make it a la carte por favor!
